GEDCOM is the de facto standard for exchanging genealogical data. ged2daml is a program for converting selected GEDCOM information into DAML.

A good freeware program capable of creating, reading, modifying, and writing GEDCOM is Personal Ancestral File (PAF), downloadable via the Order/Download Products link here.

Generated DAML can be viewed using DAML Viewer.

ged2daml was initially developed for DAML Homework Assignment 3. Lessons learned and other information is available here.
